If you are looking to add Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to your Acura at an affordable price this BOSS Elite Apple CarPlay touchscreen double din radio is a great choice. It has Bluetooth, USB Media Playback, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the option to add a backup camera or an aftermarket amplifier for subwoofers. What this radio doesn’t have is built in GPS, or Sirius XM capabilities. Installing this unit requires you to run a new microphone wire to the visor or other desired location. Also the USB inputs are at the back of the radio so you must run the extensions to an accessible location or flush mount USB ports somewhere in your dash. Our plug and play kit removes the need for any wiring so all you have to do is plug everything in. Our radio kit also allows you keep your factory steering wheel controls, amplifier, speakers and factory navigation in most Acura’s.
Who should buy this radio:
This radio is meant for those who want Apple CarPlay or Android Auto but don’t want to break the bank on buying a radio with those features. This radio also great for someone who wants Bluetooth audio streaming/calling and the ability to add a backup camera. The touchscreen on this radio is responsive and has nice colors so using it to control CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth is easy. The tactile buttons also are a great benefit of this radio. Almost all new aftermarket radios are incorporating capacitive touch buttons so its nice to have buttons you can feel and press down. Lastly this radio has an SD card slot so you can access your entire media collection instantly just by adding your SD card.
Who should look for something else:
If you are looking for built in GPS Guidance, Sirius XM capabilities, or Phone Mirroring this radio is not a good choice. This radio also isn’t suggested for those who want to run an aftermarket audio system. This radio works great with the factory audio system in the Acura TL, MDX and TSX but with aftermarket equipment this radio doesn’t have all the recommended settings to run multiple amplifiers. Installing a subwoofer amplifier is no problem but if you are planning to run a two or three amplifier system then we recommend a Kenwood radio instead.
